Rotary Clubs of Goleta Fourth of July Fireworks Festival Returning for 17th Year

The Goleta Rotary Clubs are proud to invite the community to their 17th annual Fourth of July Fireworks Festival at Girsh Park.

The festivities start at 4 p.m. Friday, July 4 and will include family-friendly activities such as watermelon- and pie-eating contests, John Deere cars, interactive games, a hula-hoop contest, jumpers and rock climbing.

Thanks to sponsorship from Deckers Outdoor Corp., children under 12 years old will be admitted to the festivities for free, and adult admission is only $6.

This celebration will be a fun-filled day for all ages with great food, fantastic entertainment, a variety of activities and a spectacular fireworks show! Entertainment will include Goleta resident Eric Onnen as emcee and live music by Bushwood and Area 51.

The Fireworks Festival is an annual charitable event hosted by the Rotary Club of Goleta Noontime and the Rotary Club of Goleta. This event is organized and run solely by dedicated volunteers. All proceeds go to benefit the Goleta Rotary Club’s foundation, which supports a variety of youth programs and community activities, including Goleta Teen of the Year, Unite to Light, Los Prietos Boys Camp, community college scholarships, and youth and troop support.

This event is not underwritten by the local government, but rather it is a community service produced by volunteers from the Goleta Rotary Clubs and the community.

Donations and volunteers are still greatly appreciated. For more information about how to get involved, please click here.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
